My Humps

Yes, two youtubes in a row makes me a bit of a cheeseout bloggie, but I love that this exposes how totally lame and demeaning the lyrics of this song are. It's something you don't really think about when it's set to it's limpy dancebeat.

I've never been much of an Alanis Morisette fan for several reasons:

  • I hate the way she says her S's. They always come out with a shushy sound that irritates me.
  • I also hate that most of the situations that she sings about in her "Ironic" song are not really examples of irony. They are just things that would not be cool if they happened.
  • It's weird to me that she's married (or was married?) to that sitcom guy--I can't make that one work in my brain and that bugs me.
  • I was a big Sex in the City fan and her episode is not one of my favs so I hate it when that's the rerun waiting for me on TIVO.

Aside from that I think this is funny even if it is in a slightly weird alish sort of way.

Do you ever hear kids sing pop songs and cringe a little at the words that come out of their mouths as they obliviously sing their little hearts out? Moms around the country must draw their fingernails into their minivan seat cushions every time they hear their daughters sing along to My Humps.

Ha, this is very Tori Amos of her. I've never been a big fan of Alanis either, but I did like her in the movie Dogma.
